Metropolitan Policeman career, postings etc
« on: Friday 18 October 19 09:55 BST (UK) »
Dear All,
I am trying to find the record of a PC (died in 1965) who worked for the Metropolitan Police. I have checked the MEPO records and know his years of service which are from 21 April 1902 until 25 April 1927. I have seen the Pensions register and this gives his last posting to H division. I know his warrant number too.
I am interested in his career timeline, where he was posted and dates etc. I presume it would not be possible to know what his activities in the police were.
Also would there be a police photo somewhere - presume no ID cards in those days.
Just wondering what a realistic expectation of what I can find out and where to look.
I have his name, warrant number and dates of service if anyone is interested in helping. I presume this is OK to share as he died fifty years ago?
thanks
